My New Craft.....Quilling

Many years ago I discovered the craft of quilling, and I have been wanting to give it a try ever since. Thanks to the many videos on YouTube and websites about this craft, I finally gave it a try. I bought a quilling tool last week, and I tried using it. At first it was a bit awkward, but after some practice, I am feeling a lot more comfortable. I still need to get a quilling board so I can keep my pieces more uniform, so maybe that will be my next purchase. I also need to buy some already precut quilling papers, but I cut some strips from my own paper to practice with. I used a low weight paper, because all the experts are saying that regular cardstock doesn't work too well for this wonderful craft.

Here is my lst 2 creations that I felt I could share on my blog. haha

Not all of my flower petals are quite uniform, but I don't think they are too bad since I made them without the benefit of a quilling board. :=) The pink flower I made with the teardrop shape, and I added a flatback pearl for the center. The yellow flower I made with the marquis shape, and I added a small white quilled circle for the flower center. I had some fun experimenting and practicing, but not everything I came up with was blog worthy. haha 

Anyway....I hope you like my 2 small creations, and I hope to use them on a card or scrapbook layout soon. I might have to make some more first though. Try it if you haven't already. I had fun with it, and I think I will continue to enjoy this craft too. It's really amazing what so many creative quillers have created with this craft. Just amazing!

Thanks for stopping by and visiting me. Please leave me a comment.

Happy Scrappin and Dollie Playing!
